Default problems uploading video from camera.

So Here is the problem.
1) my wife bought me a new Panasonic hd camera for Christmas.
2) when I hook the camera up to the computer, a HP computer the pictures look great and normal, just like the old camera. But the videos show up in a folder and the computer does not play them. However when I load the video into the Panasonic camera soft ware the video plays but it is very choppy and basically worthless.
Any ideas would be appreciated, other than my wife should have bought me an older camera or the wife needs a newer husband.
Thanks!

Before divorce, what's your camera and what are your computer specs?

my computer is a HP and it is 2.8GHz intel processor. Not sure if this is what I should be looking for.
But Thanks!

Your processor rocks. 2Gb ram should be enough and I guess you have it.
Don't know... you may need to download an AVCHD codec.
btw: propietary PhotoFunStudio is not so good. I'm using Movie Maker which came with my Windows 7 pro 64 bits for basic editing.

I think your problem can be related for not having the right driver for the video. Perhaps, this freeware Gom Player may be some help:

It supports most video formats. I have it in my computer and it is working very well for me.
